9:34 pm
colleague here to talk about the outreach. it is a program that this department has done and i will ask cynthia to share about the outreach. >> good morning. the grant that we are considering today would primarily -- the funds would primarily focus on district 10 and recruiting certified used motor oil collection centers and increase recycling and grass root outreach to the do it yourselfers and those mechanics so we would like to recruit additional sites and have public events in district district 7, 10 and 11 and in those areas and
9:35 pm
we do plan to in fact a campaign to promote a decreased oil change frequency by busting the 3,000-mile myth through grass-roots outreach and we also want to work with motorcyclists on their changing and recycling and also on the waterfront we plan to focus on san francisco marina yacht harbor reaching out to the boaters through the program and the abandoned oil left at the waterfront and educate the voters on the famous free home collection. they have access to that program and we will continue to increase our partnerships with neighboring counties that also receive this grant and i am here to answer any questions if you have any. >> supervisor avalos. >> just one question that is about the 3,000-mile myth. could you elaborate please? i
9:36 pm
have an idea. >> well, the state who grants the funds does a lot of research and they are s have come up with a campaign. they don't call it the 3,000-mile myth and that might be offensive to grandfathers who taught you when and how to change the number but it's to educate the population you might not need to change your motor oil as often as you think so some don't necessarily read the owner's manual. some do but it will indicate the frequency of the oil change. primarily for autos manufactured after the year 2000. 5,000, 7,000, 10,000, and 15,000 miles and it's saves time and helps the environment.
9:37 pm
>> is there a list of places that is readily available where people can actually get their oil recycled. >> 33 centers in san francisco including three sites along the waterfront and permanent hazardous waste collection facility. the rest are retail sites partnerships. >> is there a list on the department of environment website? >> oh sure. >> okay. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> so we don't have a budget analyst report for item two. so i would like to open it up for public comment. seeing none public comment is closed. >> motion to approve. >> we have a motion and recommendation to send forward. we can do that without opposition. mr. clerk will you call item three. >> item three with the internal revenue code and tax-exempt
9:38 pm
obligation obligation by the state wide authority and not to exceed 6.5 million and finance facilities owned by the french american international school. >> thank you and we have someone from supervisor breed's office to present the item. >> hello. i am the legislative aid on supervisor breed and i am here to speak on her behalf for the tax-exempt obligation obligation for the french american international school. i don't think it's a secret here in san francisco there is a long history of long cultural partner between san francisco and france. paris is a sister city of ours and the school is emblem mattic of this change. they moved over from berkeley i believe in 1997 or 98, and since then located here on oak just steps away from city hall.
9:39 pm
they partnered with chinese american international school as well showing they have been an active community participant especially reaching out to other cultures and expressing deep roots and bringing diversity to san francisco. this new location is in the heart of district five and particular concern for us because it's a location over on pave street for a number of years now has been a blight on the neighborhood. the san francisco unified school district has granted the ownership of the building to french american international school and we believe this is an opportunity for french american international school to move forward with the community and continue to grow in san francisco. part of what we discuss on numerous occasions with french american international school is this blossoming partnership. this is
9:40 pm
part of their mou, their memorandum of understanding, which is calling for community use of the facility and access and affordability and traffic and calming measures in the neighborhood. first and foremost of importance to supervisor breed as community use for the facility. we hope to see this as a model based on the urban school close to this location. this will -- they have been a great success and a model and i know that the administrative staff over at french american has been speaking and working with the urban school to implement some of their same models so we really see this as a great boone for our district and also a chance to create a system more accessible to low income residents and students in the district five, so with that supervisor breed hopes for your approval of this resolution and
9:41 pm
the tax-exempt obligation ordinance of 6.5 million dollars. >> thank you very much. any questions? >> we have anthony from the department of public finance. >> good morning members of the committee. i the item before you for the tax code of the tax financing obligations for the school as supervisor breed's representative has described. our office held duly noticed hearing to receive public comment and none was received, and there is no fiscal impact to the city and the city is not a party to the transaction, so the item -- the resolution approves for purpose of the tax code the public hearing and the facilitation of the finances on that basis. >> okay. perfect. any other
9:42 pm
questions? i know that we have some people i believe from the french american school here. you're welcome to speak if you want. i don't think we have any questions per se but you're welcome to take the opportunity. >> thank you. my name is aaron lef veen and the chief officer at the french american school. i want to thank you for the resolution and we will make proves to a vacant and unused property and believe it will be improvements. >> i am here from the school and hoping that you support the resolution. >> thank you very much. seeing no further questions. we don't have a budget analyst report for

9:45 pm
>-- budget director. >> good afternoon. the item is for authorization to doe one for providing information leading to the prosecution ultimately guilty plea of the perpetrator of the murder of willie allen. in 2006 mr. allen was murdered. as of 2008 his murderer was still unknown. at that time in 2008 mayor newsom approved awards up to $250,000 for this case and along with additional 15 murder cases. the police department and the da both affirm that the individual who we're requesting receive this award came forward recently and provided information for the arrest of the suspect responsible for the murder and testified in the prosecution in the case and lead to the suspect's ultimate plea and we are supporting this award by
9:46 pm
the da office. generally of awards of this type the administrative code allows the mayor to authorize the award up to $100,000 and most cases by the mayor and notified to the public and this is a large award. in order to do an an award greater than $100,000 and confirm the payment to the individual and why it's before you today. there is no general fund impact to making the award and it will be paid through the police department through their existing budget. i am happy to answer any questions that you have. >> thank you. any questions? >> i have a question. do you know how many awards for other cases are out right now and we
9:47 pm
are expecting more payments like this in the future? >> at this level there are 15 other cases that mayor newsom authorized in 2008, so that's the sort of maximum potential impact. you know this case -- this murder happened in 2006. the reward was authorized in 2008. this is the only one where the reward is being requested by any individual. >> and then the money comes out of the police department's budget and it seems like it's -- is there -- do we a lot money each budget cycle for up to the 15 or now 14 cases that this might lead to more payments? i am just wondering. >> it's an excellent question supervisor. the police department's budget has a line
9:48 pm
item in it for claims and judgments which is where this reward is paid from and it's a place where other claims, judgments and rewards have been paid in the past. we do not budget the full amount of the rewards that are outstanding. those are handled on a case by case basis. we make an assessment of what the potential risk and budget accordingly. >> and is there a time where the rewards sunset or do they go on forever if somebody comes forward 20 or 50 years from now? >> also a very good question. the way i understand it is that rewards -- on -- once offered if there is no sunset date they go on forever. >> thank you. >> any other questions? thank you ms. howard. appreciate it.
9:49 pm
again no budget analyst report so we will open it up for public comment. mr. paulson. >> we're reaching out with an award in search of you. we're going to search until the day is through, oh, oh, oh. don't be so bad. don't be so mean and the budget reward is not very lean. we're going to search for you. we're reaching out. we're in search for you. i always see like somebody's watching me, and i have a reward on you. i always feel like somebody's following me, and when will we see you again? when will we find and get a reward? will we have to wait forever? and we

9:59 pm
areas. it was built in 1910 and we have restored it. it helps make explicit the link between homelessness and shows that housing variable income people is not nearly humane and dignified. it's smart public policy. it is less expensive to keep people housed than to allow them to remain homeless. this is one social problem we actually know how to solve and all it requires is a will to do it, supportive housing work. with that. thank you. [ applause ] thank you. it's my pleasure to introduce the mayor of
